Protected after boiling water accident

I decided to clear off a small patio behind our house because figs had dropped all over it and gotten squashed and sticky. Since there was no hose nearby, I filled a giant lobster pot with boiling water.

Wearing sandals, I carried the unwieldy pot of boiling water—very heavy at probably eight gallons—to the patio. As I hurriedly put it down, water sloshed over the side and onto my left foot, making a loud sizzle sound and sending a cloud of mist into the air.
